However, it’s the fifth marriage for Katharine while it’s the first for Sam but it seems they are perfectly meant for each other. Their daughter Cleo is the only child between them.

Following their successful collaboration, Cleo was impressed with what she got and with the support of her family, she has embarked on several music projects to date.

She Has a Strained Relationship with her Mother

Cleo Rose Elliott has always been in a controversial situation with her mother which led to Katharine filing for a protective order against her daughter in 2011. Katharine has always said that Cleo abuses her emotionally and verbally but little did she know that Cleo would grow to become even more violent towards her.

In March 2011, it was alleged that Cleo went out of control and told her mom she would kill her. Afterward, she followed her mother from one end of the house to the other and when Katharine wanted to call the police for help, Cleo unexpectedly cut the telephone wire with scissors and also threatened to poke her eyes out. Later on, Dailymail reported that Katharine filed for and was granted a protective order restraining Cleo from coming close to her mother. She was asked by the court to stay 100 yards away from her mother, her car, and her workplace.

In addition, Katharine was accompanied by a police officer to pick up her things from her house. To date, nothing has been disclosed by any member of the family with regard to the cause of such action between Cleo and her mother. They do enjoy keeping their family issues under the shades.
